SNUBS:

  • Leonardo DiCaprio for Django Unchained , best actor in a supporting role. Wasn’t my last post about how great he was in that movie? He totally deserved a nominaion. The Academy does this every time to him. It’s high time he wins an Oscar already!
  • Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty, best director
  • Ben Affleck for Argo, best director
  • Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained, best director
  • Tom Hooper for Les Miserables, best director. Why were all the predicted directors left out?
  • The Dark Knight Rises. I thought they should have gotten some nominations in the techinical categories. Maybe like visual effects or sound mixing
  • Javier Bardem for Skyfall. best actor in a supporting role
  • Marion Cottilard for Rust and Bone. best actress in a leading role

SURPRISES:

  • Quvenzhane Wallis for Beats of the Southern Wild, best actress in a leading role. The youngest nominee in the history of this category. Even though I’m all for this adorable girl, who I’m sure was great in Beasts.., I just can’t imagine being an older and trained actor with lots more experience than her. Imagine being beat by a 9- year old! I would be pretty mad.
  • Emmanuelle Riva for Amour, best actress in a leading role. The oldest nominee in this category!
  • Life of Pi got 11 nominations, crazy!

okay so that’s all that I could think of.  Remember to watch the Golden Globes on Sunday at 8!

I’ll make my predictions for Oscar Sunday after the Globes
